Utah: Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument
121 images Created 8 Jun 2011
Hike wonderfully wild desert and slot canyon scenery in Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument in southern Utah, USA. Drive mostly via dirt roads (often impassible when wet). These photos by Tom Dempsey are from recommended hikes to Lower Calf Creek Falls, Zebra and Tunnel Slot Canyons, Willis Creek slot, Cottonwood Wash Narrows along Cottonwood Road #400, Bull Valley Gorge, Rimrock Hoodoos, and the Cockscomb. See Heritage House, an 1895 Queen Anne-style Victorian home in Kanab, a town known for USA’s first all-woman town council (1911) and "the greatest earth on show."
